Check out the official iPhone XS, XS Max and XR promo videos

Core ML

That gives it a lower multi-core score than last year's iPhone X, but a higher single-core one. The exclusion of these older models also omits the 3.5mm headphone jack for once and all from the iPhone lineup.

Apple hasn't publicly said why, though CEO Tim Cook may explain the firm's thinking in a future earnings call.

Exports of Swiss watches in the entry-price segment - a retail price of up to around $500 - have steadily declined over the past years, with competition from smartwatches one of the factors responsible.

The iPhone XS barely differs from its predecessor. Further, the rear wide-angle lens, True Tone flash, and True Depth camera on the iPhone XR are identical to those found on the iPhone XS, so the only difference from a photography point of view appears to be the lack of the second telephoto lens.

Overall, Beavis feels that "the "cheap" iPhone certainly doesn't feel that way", and he came away from its design and build quality impressed.

The Xr will come in a whopping six colors: white, black, blue, coral and yellow (in addition to a Product Red version).

Replacing the batteries in the iPhone X line will cost more than for other iPhones.

T3 will imminently be reviewing the iPhone XS in full, so be sure to check back in soon for our official verdict. According to the reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple paid $US120 to $US130 per screen unit, about twice as much as it normally pays for screens. The XR has a 6.1-inch screen, which lands it right between the XS and XS Max in terms of size.

Kuo predicted in January that this would happen.

The iPhone XR starts at $749 with 64GB of storage, the same price as a smaller screened iPhone 8 256GB model and $50 more than an iPhone plus with 64GB of storage.

For any iPhone X owners anxious about whether the discontinuation will dent the resale value of their phone, the Forrester analyst Thomas Husson has some reassuring words. "I don't think [discontinuation] will impact its resale value".
